Sometimes it only takes one word for you to know exactly what you are gonna get.
It reminds me of a story…
I went to see a Credence Clearwater Revival tribute band with my buddy Half once. In between sets one of the band members was standing near us at the bar, and Half struck up a conversation with him that went something like this:
Half: When ya’ll gonna play “Lodi”?
The Guy: We don’t play “Lodi”.
Half: *with full contempt* If you don’t play “Lodi” you ain’t no damn CCR tribute band!

I would like to suggest a “Halfacre Scale”. This would rank people, 1 through 10 (10 being the highest), on the percentage of anecdotal material that can be pulled out of a subject’s total conversation.
For instance, if I were to talk with you for one hour and you were then able to pull two entertaining, first-person stories out of that conversation, I would score 7 on the Halfacre scale.
My point is that I know Halfacre (and have for several years) and yet I have heard more stories ABOUT what Halfacre has said than I have actually heard come from the man’s mouth.
That is how you get a scale named after you.
Schwartz could you also please construct a Rooster Quote Index. The basis being words that do not appear in any language, and/or profanity laced rants. Thanks in advance.
